in as little as 15 minutes. but the defense says kennedy made an honest mistake and that the prosecution has not proven its case. >> hopefully the jury will agree. >> reporter: in a case where no one disputes the facts, it will all come down to kennedy's judgment. >> the issue ultimately will be whether she realized that she was under the influence of ambien and yet continued to drive. >> reporter: if convicted, kennedy could lose some driving privileges. she also faces up to a year in jail. it's unlikely she'd actually serve they time, though, because she doesn't have a record. kennedy has pleaded not guilty and the trial could continue through the week. robin? >> all right, mara, thanks very much. >>> to the latest on the mysterious shooting of a prominent new york real estate tycoon and political power broker at his castle, one of the biggest private homes in the u.s. gary melius says he has no idea who would want to harm him. abc's gio benitez has that story for us. >> reporter: this morning, with his would-be assassin on the loose, the owner of one of america's largest and most exclusiv

this time. this week, defense secretary chuck hagel detailed what he described as difficult choices to reduce military spending and cut back the overall size of u.s. forces. among the proposals in the defense department's 2015 budget, shrinking the army from 522,000 to 440,000, the lowest level since 1940. that would save $3.5 billion by retiring the air force's entire a-10 fleet. it would place half of the navy's cruiser fleet in reduced operating status. reforming military compensation packages. and then, also, asking congress for yet another round of base closing and realignments in 2017. now, secretary hagel said tuesday the recommendations were made after weighing the risks against fiscal reality. >> the world's unpredictable. i get that. you have to be prepared. i get that. but you also have to use some common sense. would you rather have more soldiers than less? of course, you would. of course, you would. but it's also the reality, if we couldn't have unlimited resources here. >> now, the pentagon's budget, it depends on what you want to call a cut. right now, it's set at $49
assert that as a defense against that, but the burden rests on you to demonstrate, a, that it's based on a religious belief, that the religious belief is sincere, and that there is a substantial burden placed upon you. once you've -- only once you've satisfied that burden, which is a high one, does the burden shift to the government and then they have to demonstrate a compelling government -- if they can demonstrate a compelling government, then they can override. >> a person can just choose to discriminate say i don't want to serve this person and i understand the interest to bring the government into this, but sometimes these people can just make a decision on their own, the government's not saying anything, then they're discriminating. >> we'll talk about this for a little bit more. i want to surprise you. i'm going to shock you, shock everybody at home. when we come back, i'm going to explain why today's republicans should learn a lesson about gay rights from, of all people, ronald reagan, when we get back. marge: you know, there's a more enjoyable way to get your fiber. try phill
not to put missiles in those two countries, defensive missiles, part of the missile shield, to be used against rogue regimes such as iran. although, they still don't have missiles as far as we know that have kind of range. this is starting to look like a highly destablizing moment in history. >> you are right. thhs is how regional wars get started, one thing is is not openly discussed, is that we're rely on russia for removal of our equipment from afghanistan. as president obama goes into his idea for a transition or withdrawal, if not russia, pakistan. it is jumping from pot to the fire. lou: well, pots and fires, but, this i a president right now who it is clear, was wrong in his assessmen of putin, and russia's ambitions, and looks like he has underestimated hi administration and our different's ability to government's a bill to respond to such an act by russia, what is or recourse now, in your judgment, as a geo political analyst? >>, we have two main tracks to follow, one is arming the other states that borde russia, ging them what they need to defend. second santions track there

done six times since february of last year. it's something that the defense minister likes doing to put the military through its paces and basically exposes any flaws in the system and allows the ministry to become more efficient. at least, that's the thinking behind it. having said there is no connection between this military alert and what's going on in ukraine, i think the russian government would be well aware that reminding it's rivals and it's neighbors of russian military might at a time when russian military influence has just taken a big dent in central europe certainly won't hurt russian interests at all. >> traumatic new pictures from a refugee camp in syria. this is in a makeshift camp of tents in the middle of a war zone made up mostly of bombed out buildings. roxana has been looking into this for us. >> reporter: the story i'm about to tell you is a story of hardship. this photo shows hordes of people tired, hungry and gaunt. they're ready to get food from u.n. which started delivering food last month. it's dangerous work. the camp is caught in a cross fire between syrian
